Get it? Eh?
…Oh man, I am on a roll with these puns this week. You know what else I’ve been on a roll with? Making some merchandise, AWW YEAH. Check it out:
These are a bunch of potential designs for charms that I’m going to sell at MoCCA next month. I am the kind of person whose keys become inordinately heavy due to an ever-growing collection of keychains, and I love collecting little trinkets with my favorite characters on them, so I figured I may as well combine the two! All of the characters you see above are from books that I’ll have for sale at the show, too. Edie and her yeti friend are from Abominable and its sequel, Monsters; the purple flour-sack-like figures are from iNterruption; the obese cat is from my children’s book, Eat Up, Cat, which will be available for the first time at MoCCA. (If you simply can’t wait to get your hands on Abominable or iNterruption, you can purchase them in the store on my main site.)
Each of these charms will be 1 1/2 inches tall–perfect for keychains or cell phone charms!–and will be printed on black waterproof acrylic. I’m ordering them from a small-run print shop called Printsess. I’ve never used them before, but with customers like Threadless and Yuko Ota and Ananth Panagariya (the creators of Johnny Wander) in their repertoire I’m sure they do a good job.
With all that in mind, I’d really like to know what you guys think of these designs! If you have a minute to cast a vote, please help me choose the most appealing ones! I’d like to do an order of up to four designs, so please choose your top four and vote for them.
Thanks for your help! I’d like to make the order by Tuesday, so I’ll close the poll on Monday night after my update. If you’re still in a voting mood, why don’t you head on over to Paul’s blog and check out his poll? He’s also getting some charms made and has some excellent monster designs. Personally, I’m voting for the axolotl, the bat, the lounge lizard, and Quetzalcoatl. NOT THAT I AM TRYING TO SWAY YOUR VOTES OR ANYTHING
